Someone else may be able to help better. I would suggest finding more info:

What happens when those two fonts are displayed outside Emacs? Does the 18pt
font look bold then also?

What happens if you change the font for the frame instead of using
`text-scale-increase'? E.g. set the `font' frame parameter.

Depending on the answers, you might need to report an Emacs bug (e.g. if the
problem comes only from `text-scale-increase'.
